Two weeks ago my husband and I embarked on a home renovation adventure that, as per Youtube, should have taken 4-5 days to complete. Here are our top tips on how to paint your kitchen cabinets! 


1)   Choose Your Colour Wisely - Over the past 10 years, our maple cabinets had yellowed, and we were looking for something fresh and clean. We were aiming for a creamy white, but what we achieved with our first try was as close to snow-white as we could get. Because we did a test door, we realized our mistake right away. We ended up taking the cream colour of our baseboards and pantry door and using 3/4 of that colour depth.

2)   Stay Away From Oil - Our first primer was a hybrid oil-based primer; horrible! It was very hard to roll smoothly and it…

As many parents find out, the craziness of Halloween week can reek havoc with your normal, busy week. Shopping for or making costumes, baking treats for your child’s class, decorating the lawn and carving pumpkins while driving your kids to lessons and practices can be overwhelming!

Several years ago, when our girls were both heavily into dance, youth group, and piano lessons, I sat down with my calendar, desperately trying to figure out when we would carve our pumpkins. There wasn't a free evening anywhere! During one of the girl’s many practices, I wandered into Michaels and found the answer to my prayers! I purchased two artificial pumpkins and showed my daughters when I picked them up. They were apprehensive; pumpkin carving was a big part of our…

Our children have been carving artificial pumpkins each year, and we proudly display their creations each Halloween. This year, they added a shiny teal pumpkin to the patch!

When I was a kid, food allergies were a rare occurrence, and the only thing we had to worry about after Trick-Or-Treating was how we were going to trick our younger siblings into trading their tasty Chocolate Bar for our yucky Molasses Toffee.

With the many food allergies today, many kids have much more to worry about. I have two children; a thirteen year old that can eat anything, and an 18 year old who grew up with sensitivities to milk, wheat, eggs, chocolate, coffee, peanuts… you know the drill. Like many parents, I had the difficult job of trying to keep her safe while…
